We learned last week from LA Times reporting, and from Congressional Hearings, that Insurance companies routinely try to drop your Insurance policy, if you happen to get one of their “Hot List” illnesses.
Getting any of these illnesses, can Trigger the Insurance Company’s “Cancellation Police”, into action.
Denial Specialists scour your medical history, and cross-check that against your application, looking for any reason to Cancel, or rescind, your Insurance policy, thus saving the Insurance Company untold thousands in future payments for your expected Care. Denial Specialists, of course, earn bonuses for each Policy they cancel. What a system!
Those 4 illnesses (out of the 1000+ such Triggers) previously disclosed are:
breast cancer, high blood pressure, lymphoma and pregnancy
Well thanks to the tough questioning of the Oversight and Investigations Sub Committee, at least 2 more Triggering Illnesses have been disclosed, as indicated in the video and transcript of the Hearing:
The 2 other newly disclosed “Drop List” illnesses, include:
ovarian cancer, and brain cancer
